43% said mobility is their top business functionality in 2015, according to new findings from a joint survey by OutSystems and TechValidate.
OutSystems has also announced the release of Platform 9 Amsterdam to help companies easily achieve their business needs through custom-developed applications.
More than half of over 200 IT decision makers surveyed at global enterprises said that they plan to build between 51% - 100% of their apps with a mobile component.
60% said that the dominant mobile architectures for 2015 will be Mobile Web and 65% said it will be Hybrid. Only 26% of enterprises plan to use Native mobile architectures.
"The survey results echo the challenges we hear from customers: they are increasingly focused on delivering mobile applications, they aren't getting what they need from off-the-shelf from packaged applications, and they desperately need the ability to integrate quickly and seamlessly with a wide variety of technologies," said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. "This confluence of challenges within enterprise application development is leading organizations to seek alternatives to dramatically simplify the delivery of applications, regardless of the underlying technology requirements."
Enhances integration options
The newly released Platform 9 Amsterdam from OutSystems is designed to boost integration options and omnichannel experience.
OutSystems claims the platform can also enhance app change capabilities as well as core technology and enterprise-scale functionality.
New functionality of OutSystems Platform 9 Amsterdam includes enhanced portfolio governance from development through deployment. It now supports the demand for apps that disconnect front-end from back-end and provides business agility.
OutSystems Platform 9 Amsterdam also includes added support for SQL Server 2014, Oracle 12c, and Microsoft Azure.
"RAD tools have been plagued with a bad reputation, and in most cases, it's well deserved," said Paulo Rosado, CEO of OutSystems. "This market category is filled with incomplete offerings that are limited and don't properly handle the requirements of large organizations. With this release of OutSystems Platform, we are reinforcing our position as the only RAD platform that addresses the needs of the enterprise in terms of governance, scalability and security without compromising rapid delivery."
